Good news: Amazon.com has opened in Florida, 30 miles from our house.
Bad News: As part of the deal to get them moved here, they had to agree with the state of FL to charge FL residents 6.9 % tax on all purchases.
Good News: They sent me an email saying I could get 10.00 off any purchase between May 1 and 7th... and click here to add to your account which I did.
Bad News: the day I got the email, I dropped the new 50 mm lens I ordered from Amazon, and when I put it on the camera it was stuck and would not come off.
Good New: I googled and found a ton of people with the same problems, seems it is a CHEAP plastic lens and it happens a LOT...
Bad News: to get it off you have to destroy it.. OR mail the camera and lens off to Canon and wait 3 weeks.
Good News: there were many tutorials on how to get it off.
Bad News: Bob had to do it, I could not...and there were lots of HOT words a going on. from BOB AND ME...
Good News: It's off, the Rebel still works with the other lens.
